09 May 2019 - The Government of Montenegro will work to improve the business environment and enable foreign investors to have all the conditions for business, Prime Minister Duško Marković noted following the opening of the MAN Truck & Bus Centre in Danilovgrad.
The value of the investment is over 2.3 million EUR, and the building was built by MAN Truck & Bus AG Munich Germany, which has 260 years of tradition in industrial production and more than 100 years of experience in the production of commercial vehicles.
"First of all, I would like to express my satisfaction with the implementation of the project of the Germany-based MAN, which represents a significant impetus to the development of Danilovgrad and entire Montenegro. Having MAN in Montenegro and Danilovgrad is indeed not only a privilege, but a good indicator of the direction our economy is taking," Prime Minister Marković stressed.
He added that this sales and service centre would give an incentive to the sustainability of this investment, as well as the economy of the entire municipality of Danilovgrad.
The Prime Minister also referred to the development of the municipality and said that in the next few years over 30 million EUR would be invested in capital infrastructure in Danilovgrad. The reconstruction of the Danilovgrad - Podgorica road is planned to get a four-lane boulevard, as well as the completion of the old road between the capital city and this municipality, which will be a strong incentive for a new quality of life in Danilovgrad and investments.
"Our economy is growing. For the past two years, we have had average growth rates of 4.8%, which is among the top five growth rates in Europe. We do not want it to be a momentum, but continuity," PM Marković underscored.
The Prime Minister said that the indicators in the first quarter of this year show that Montenegro has significantly higher growth in all sectors compared to the fourth quarter of 2018, which means that this year will result in a high growth rate.
"This means new jobs, a better and more sustainable budget and a better life for citizens. The Government will work to maintain this tempo, improve the business environment and enable foreign investors to have all the conditions for business and maintenance of its operation," the Prime Minister of Montenegro concluded.
